Coast Guard assists vessel taking on water near Channel Islands

CHANNEL ISLANDS, Calif. – The Coast Guard assisted a vessel taking on water between Anacapa Island and Oil Platform Gina at approximately 12 p.m. Sunday.

An HH-65C Dolphin helicopter from Coast Guard Air Station Los Angeles and a 47-foot motor life boat from Coast Guard Station Channel Islands were launched after receiving a call from the California Highway Patrol of a 16-foot pleasure craft taking on water.

A good Samaritan responded and located the pleasure craft and provided a more precise location to the Coast Guard responders.

The Coast Guard crew aboard the 47-foot motor life boat then took the 16-foot boat in tow back to Channel Islands Harbor.

There were no reported injuries.
